2017 Fall Marathon Training

2017 Fall Marathon Training

Ready to take on the full 26.2 miles?  If you have run 13 miles then you are ready to join our marathon training program! 

Whether you are a seasoned marathoner or a first timer with the goal to finish, we have a place for you!  Our marathon program is designed to challenge you, encourage you, and to help you have a healthy training experience as you build up mileage and speed in preparation for the 26.2 Mile Race.

Fleet Feet Sports Marathoners are broken into various pace groups based on running background as well as goals.  These pace groups are designed to help you train in a safe and effective manner as you build up your base mileage.  Speed workouts during the marathon program are an opportunity to work with your pace group to push yourself and to train at your target race pace.  These workouts are combined with core and upper body strengthening to ensure a complete fitness experience.

Get ready to cross the marathon off your bucket list... and be prepared to have so much fun doing it that you decide to come out for the program again!

Kick Off Meeting:  Tuesday, July 25th at 6:00pm at Fleet Feet Sports

Workouts:  Tuesdays at 6pm and Saturdays at 6am starting Saturday, July 29th

Race Date:  Richmond Marathon November 11th, 2017

Cost:  $140 (does not include race registration)

Coached Workouts:
Tuesday nights
 you will be challenged with a combination of hill work, form drills and speed workouts. Designed to help you run faster and more efficiently, you will be amazed with your improved overall fitness from these challenging and fun sessions.

Saturday mornings we will go the distance. Saturday runs will be done at a slower pace to increase the amount of time on your spent on your feet and to encourage a quick recovery.  Long runs will be combined by the half marathoners and will be done with targeted pace groups.  Saturday long runs will be crucial to your success in the marathon as they help you to build up cardiovascular, muscular, and skeletal strength for the endurance to finish the entire event. 

Pace groups will help you to challenge yourself while giving you a consistent group for training. Your registration information sheet and our first group practice will allow us to appropriately place you in your group. Your schedule will be tailored for your group and you will work together throughout the program to help one another reach the next level in distance and speed. Each pace group will have an assigned volunteer coach with them on the run.
